12  Hanging storage thing, a gift for a new born baby boy (warning! lots of pics!) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Marinka on: August 19, 2008 04:11:21 PM
I don't know how to call this thing (even in dutch I don't know the name). I made this thing for the room of the new born baby boy of two of my best friends. Before he was born I've already seen the room. I've used the same fabric they used for the curtains.

(all pics are clickable)

The hanging storage 'thing':

I've made some stuffed animals of left over fabric. I've attached some labels with the baby's name (baby's like it to put labels in their mouth):

Back of one of the animals, made of towelling:

The little animals are used as application on self made burp cloths:

The evil chameleon is turned into a thing that can replace a hot water bottle. The cameleon is filed whit rice. warm it a couple of minutes in the microwave and it stays warm for hours:

The zebra can put on the door of the room. So everyone knows it's the baby's room:

The left over animal is turned into a congratulation card:

All the little gifts together:

All things together:

This is how I gave the gift:

Little stuffed animal (IKEA 0,35)
USB drive (5,- - .,-)
Needle to melt holes
Needle and thread to sew
Pair of scissors

Step 1:
Start with preparing the animal.
You have to cut of the head the animal with a pair of scissors and pull some of the inside out to make some space for the USB drive.

Step 2:
Than prepare the USB drive.
Melt with a hot needle some holes in the edge of the USB drive. Care for the inside of the drive. To heat the needle use a cork to put the needle in en stitch the needle in a very hot (gas) flam

Step 3:
Now put the USB drive into the body of the animal and the other part into the head. Fix the USB drive to the animal with needle and threat. Pull the needle a couple of time across the animal. Fold the cuted edges a little inside when sewing the holes at the edge.

Step 4:
The finishing touch.
for example:
- put a ring to the tale.
- to prevent you lose his head, you can put a wire between the two parts. (I did this after I made the pictures)

I've made a felted hat and a shawl with a water soluble fleece technique.

Hat: I've started with wool of a sheep, I've felted, formed and coloured it.
Shawl: I've put wool, ribbons etc. between 2 layers of water soluble fleece, than I've sewed it together and put it in water to remove the fleece.
